A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
  This F.A.Q. is only for the Character Profiles. So if anybody have anything

Blood Type: Unknown
Weapon: Snake Sword
Weapon Name: Valentine (Ivy Blade)
Discipline: Unrelated Link

Family: Adoptive parents/Deceased

  Ivy's father, Count Valentine, was driven insane by his pursuit of Soul Edge.
By the time of his death, the Valentines--one of London's most distinguished
families--was in ruins. The Countess fell ill and passed away soon thereafter,
leaving Ivy with the words that Valentines were not her true parents.

  Obeying the wishes of her adoptive father, Ivy continued the search for Soul
Edge and studied alchemy. During her investigation, she uncovered the true
nature of the sword, which was an evil blade that feasted on souls. She vowed
to destroy Soul Edge to avenge her father's death. She invoked strange powers
through occult rituals summon a mysterious individual who gave life to the
mechanical sword she dubbed "Ivy Blade."

  When she left on a journey to search for the evil sword, Ivy crossed paths
with Nightmare, the one who breathed life into the sword. She agreed to assist
him in his ritual to summon souls. Little did she know that it was all part of
the demonic weapon's plan.

  Ivy found out the truth the day Nightmare was defeated and Soul Edge was
shattered. She realized that Nightmare possessed Soul Edge, and that her birth
father was manipulated by the weapon's wicked powers.

  Shaken by the horrifying truth, Ivy returned home and locked herself away in
a dark laboratory.

  After months of soul searching, Ivy emerged with renewed resolve. Her goal
was to completely wipe out the sword's existence. She renamed her weapon, which
shared the same fate as herself, "Valentine."

Weapon Name: Soul Edge & Nirvana
Discipline: Memories of Soul Edge

Family: Father/Killed in battle
        His Crew/Slaughtered by his own hands

  Under the influence of Soul Edge, the dead pirate Cervantes slaughtered his
entire crew and fed off of souls of swordsmen whom dared to venture forth to
challenge him.

  But one day, a holy warrior sent by God destroyed one of the demonic blades,
and Cervantes' body was consumed by hellfire.

  His soul, however, was not freed by the destruction of his corporeal form.
The pieces of Soul Edge buried in his body resurrected Cervantes.

  He had the most of his memory, but it eventually came flooding back. Along
with his memories came back the desire to possess that great power once again.
Although he recalled the loss of his free will to the power, it still appealed
to him. Cervantes began to seek the fragments of the sword, only to realize
that the second sword had been shattered as well.

  He picked up several pieces of the newly created shards and gazed upon them.
Was his desire to possess that power again for naught? That was when Cervantes
sensed something strange. Two pieces of the sword in his palm began to resonate
with his body and began to melt into one.

  Four years passed. He took souls of the strong and found new pieces of the
sword to increase the power of Soul Edge. In time, the fragments assumed the
shape of a sword and began to emanate an evil aura.

  His ultimate goal was the revival of Soul Edge. To accomplish his goal, he
needed as many fragments of the evil blade as he could find.


Name: Nightmare

Age: Unknown
Birthplace: Unknown
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 209 lbs.
Birth Date: Unknown
Blood Type: Unknown
Weapon: Soul Edge (Zweihander Type)
Weapon Name: Soul Edge (Male)
Discipline: Styles memorized by Soul Edge

Family: Unknown

  Originally, he was the leader of a group of brigands known as the Schwarzwind
(Black Wind), whose stronghold was located near the Roman Empire. He left on a
journey to find Soul Edge after his father was murdered.

  Eventually, on a Spanish harbor he came across a sword emanating a strange
aura lying besides the corpse of a pirate. The dead body returned to life,
covered in flames, as if to protect the sword. Upon defeating the apparition,
he reached for the hilt of the mysterious blade.

  It was then that he heard the voice of Soul Edge. It told him that if he used
the souls absorbed by the sword, he would be able to resurrect his father. From
that moment on, the man became Nightmare, the evil knight who would go on to
strike fear into every corner of Europe.

  He killed for three years thereafter to feed his sword with souls. But his
dream was crushed when a warrior wielding a spirit sword called Soul Calibur--a
sword with polar opposite energy of Soul Edge--appeared. Nightmare and Soul
Edge were defeated, and they both fell into the collapsing void.

  He somehow managed to survive and regained some of his sanity. Along with
lucidity came the horrifying memories of the sins he had committed, as well as
the realization that it was he who had murdered his father.

  He knew Soul Edge must never fall into the hands of another man. He set off
to be as far as possible from other humans, yet awoke every morning to the
sight of people he had slain during the night. The evil blade took over his
body while he slept.

  After four years, he was once again Nightmare, his body taken over by Soul
Edge completely. He began to pursue the fragments of Soul Edge in a mission to
full restore itself.

  Will there ever be a day when he will be Siegfried Schtauffen once more?

  The Italian merchant of death named Vercci was one of the many sought Soul
Edge. During the search for the weapon, Vercci lost a large portion of his
wealth to war. Vercci dug a pit on a small island, where he hid the remains of
his wealth.

  The chasm, which later became known as the Money Pit, had a guardian named

  Even after his master's death, Voldo guarded the vault faithfully. At the
same time, he sought the weapon his master desired.

  One day, after Voldo chased an intruder away, he heard his long-lost master's
voice. Obeying his master's orders, Voldo followed Soul Edge's aura emanating
from the female intruder's sword. Eventually, he succeeded in bringing back a
single-handed sword that emanated a strange aura. Yet he did not hear the voice
of his deceased master.

  Four years passed without hearing his master's voice.

  When he defeated an intruder one day, Voldo found several metal shards that
possessed the same aura as Soul Edge. Voldo finally understood why he did not
hear his deceased master's voice. The sword he brought back was not Soul Edge.

  Voldo set out again. This time, he would bring Soul Edge back to his master.


Name: Astaroth

Discipline: Gyulkus

Family: Servants of Ares, the God of war

  When Astaroth eventually found it, the sword in a weakened state, having lost
half of itself in battle.

  Deciding that his God would not be pleased with the blade in this condition,
the golem followed the orders of Nightmare (who wielded the sword at the time)
and slaughtered countless victims in order to strengthen the unholy weapon.
Three years later, the blade had recovered its power, and the time was nearing
for Astaroth to take Soul Edge from Nightmare's grasp.

  Unfortunately for Astaroth, he was defeated by one individual before he could
accomplish his goal. Astaroth was a subject of bitter hatred for those who
managed to survive his innumerable massacres.

  Four years later. Astaroth was resurrected. It was a feat only superhuman
powers could invoke. It could be said that it was a form of miracle. Astaroth's
body also absorbed pieces of Soul Edge, which made him far more powerful and

  Eventually, Astaroth must have remembered his purpose, for he hefted his
familiar ax and vanished into the mist.


Name: Heishiro Mitsurugi

Age: 29
Birthplace: Bizen, Japan
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 142 lbs.
Birth Date: June 8
Blood Type: AB
Weapon: Katana
Weapon Name: Shishi-Oh
Discipline: Tenpu-Kosai-Ryu Kai

Family: Immediate family/All taken by sickness

  Although Mitsurugi was born into a peasant family, this did not stop him from
becoming a renowned mercenary with nicknames such as "One Many Army" and

  One day, Mitsurugi, beaten by a rifle called Tanegashima, happened upon a
story of a massive sword called Soul Edge.

  Mitsurugi crossed the ocean in search of Soul Edge. During his journey, he
heard rumors that Soul Edge's wielder, Nightmare, had disappeared, but
Mitsurugi was unwilling to give up.

  Four years after his quest had begun, Mitsurugi stumbled upon the trail of
Soul Edge while visiting a castle near the Ming frontier. A mysterious man
handed him a piece of Soul Edge. Mitsurugi had his doubts, but ultimately
decided to believe the man.

  Soon afterwards, an incident occurred where a servant of the Ming Emperor
arrived at the castle, demanding for the "Sword of Heroes." The lord slew the
servant when he refused to leave without the sword.

  "War is coming," thought Mitsurugi.

  He senses the same storm that he had felt before on countless battlefields.


Name: Necrid

Age: Unknown
Birthplace: Unknown
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 238 lbs.
Birth Date: Unknown
Blood Type: Changed by the void
Weapon: Enigma
Weapon Name: Maleficus
Discipline: Self-taught

Family: Does not remember (Actual parents long deceased)

  He was a warrior that managed to reach Soul Edge. The energy of the evil
blade, however, poisoned his body and mind, and he became something other than

  The warrior, now a bloodthirsty abomination, sought the one thing that gave
solace to his constant pain--the fragments of Soul Edge. His only thought was
to collect every piece he could find.


Name: Taki

Age: 29
Birthplace: Fu-Ma No Sato, Japan
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 117 lbs.
Birth Date: Unknown
Blood Type: A
Weapon: Ninja Sword x 2
Weapon Name: Rekki-Maru & Mekki-Maru
Discipline: Battoh-Ryu

Family: Immediate family/All taken by sickness.

  After defeating the dread pirate Cervantes, Taki attempted to fuse a fragment
of Soul Edge she removed from Sophitia's body in the demonic blade, Mekki-Maru.
Much to her surprise, Mekki-Maru began to surge with even greater evil energy.

  Taki feared that the leader of the Fu-Ma clan, Master Toki, would take
Mekki-Maru away, so she left the clan and became a renegade ninja. She searched
for Soul Edge in the hopes of destroying both swords by pitting them against
one another. Unfortunately, by the time she found Soul Edge, its wielder,
Nightmare, had already been defeated.

  Perhaps it was the fact that she lacked a plan to destroy Mekki-Maru, but
Taki's desire to master the sword began to grow.

  One day, several Fu-Ma Ninjas appeared before her. Unlike previous
encounters, these pursuers attempted to capture her, rather than trying to kill
her. Searching through the strewn remains of the ninjas, Taki came across a
familiar metal fragment.

  Toki was undoubtedly searching for the information about Soul Edge. That
would explain why the ninjas attempted to take her alive.

  Knowing the effects of Soul Edge on its wielders, Taki knew she could not let
it get into the hands of Master Toki.

  On her way back to Japan, she sensed the presence of the evil sword. Time was
running out.

Age: 15

Weight: 93 lbs.
Birth Date: June 15
Blood Type: Unknown
Weapon: Elbow Blade x 2
Weapon Name: Syi Sarika & Loka Luha
Discipline: Wind Dance

Family: Father/Sanput

  Southeast Asia was thrust into an age of turmoil when Western Europe's
influence began to encroach upon their lands. In one particular region of
Southeast Asia lived a tribe of people who could control the winds.

  Talim was the daughter of this village's shaman, and she was reared to be the
last priestess. During an ear where faith in the Wind Deity gradually waned,
Talim possessed unparalleled potential to be a shaman.

  One day, as Talim read the winds just as she had done many times, a violent
evil aura that seemed to devour everything in it ph surged into her body. Talim
lost her consciousness and did not wake for days. The incident occurred the day
the Evil Seed spread across the world.

  When Talim was 15, a westerner brought a peculiar metallic fragment. The
westerner touted the object as a "vitality charm," but Talim immediately
recognized the evil within the piece of metal; it was the same malevolent
energy that she felt on the day she collapsed.

  "I must return the fragment to its rightful place!" Talim exclaimed.

  The young priestess left on the journey, even though her elders were full of

  Soon after Talim left the village, she senses the resonance of the same evil
aura from other parts of the world. She knew that everything would soon be
consumed by illness if the evil force continued to spread. Talim knew she had
to find all of the fragments and seek their rightful place.

  No matter how far she was from her home, Talim could feel the wind. She was
not afraid-no matter how long the journey, she knew she would be fine as long
as the winds were with her.


Name: Heihachi Mishima

Age: 75
Birthplace: Claims to be Japanese
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 176 lbs.
Birth Date: Unknown
Blood Type: B
Weapon: His Body
Discipline: Mishima-Style Karate

Family: Pet/Kuma

  After completing his mountain training with Kuma, Heihachi stopped by at a
hot springs resort to recuperate. There he encountered an ancient metallic
fragment. According to old picture scrolls, this shard was a piece of Soul
Edge, a notorious sword from medieval Eroupe. Heihachi grabbed the fragment in
excitement and accidentally cut his fingertip.

  After a moment of dizziness passed, Heihachi looked around at his
surroundings. A feeling of uneasiness washed ober him. He was no longer at the
resort he had been at just a few moments ago. Heihachi was stunned, but
nevertheless remained collected.

  After he wandered around for a while, he came to the conclusion that he was
no longer in modern-day Japan. He had somehow traveled back to ancient times.
Apparently, he was in the latter half of the 16th century.

  Regardless of the situation, Heihachi had to find a way to return to his time.

  There was a part of him, however, that was trembling with anticipation of
what was about to transpire. He knew the history behind the fragment, which was
rife with bottles between warriors fighting for its possession. Now, he was
right in the midst of it all.

  What better way to test his strength than a warring era ruled by power? A
fighter could not ask for a better challenge!

Age: 32
Birthplace: France Empire/Rouen
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 159 lbs.
Birth Date: November 27
Blood Type: A
Weapon: English Sword Rapier
Weapon Name: Flambert
Discipline: La Rapiere des Sorel

Family: Foster daughter/Amy
        Relatives/Cut all ties

  Raphael, the young master of the Sorel family, grew up with the rapier and
medicine as his playmates. His cool, unemotional demeanor created many enemies,
but his quick and precise decision-making and execution skills solidified the
foundation of his family amongest the nobles. Unfortunately, Raphael was cast
out one day when he made a critical mistake.

  Raphael hid himself in an impoverished town to escape from his pursuers.
There he met a little girl named Amy, who hid the weakened Raphael from his
enemies. For the little girl, helping Raphael was only a simple deed motivated
out of spite for the soldiers. For Raphael, however, it marked the first time
he owed his life to someone else. He felt emotions that he had never
experienced before, and Amy became an irreplaceable presence in Raphael's life.

  Convinced that the chaos of the war was no place to live a meaningful life.
Raphael took Amy and left the poverty--stricken town. But even with the new
surroundings, he could not get Amy to open her heart to the world.

  One day, in the library of the mansion he acquired under dark pretenses,
Raphael found a letter with references to the Evil Seed. It wasn't long before
he made the connection between Evil Seed and Soul Edge.

  What if such a sword were thrust into the hands of the pathetic nobles? It
would all be worth it if the petty, war-mongering nobles could be eliminated to
secure a meaningful future for Amy. But in order to accomplish his goal,
Raphael needed Soul Edge; he was determined to obtain the sword by any means

  A grand, insane plan was brewing in his mind--all for the sake of a young

Xianglian, who was like his sister.

  Kilik was to be the successor of one of the three sacred treasures of the
Ling-Sheng Su Temple, called the Kali-Yuga.

  Tragically, the night before the succession ceremony, a mysterious light fell
upon the temple, driving all those who saw it into an insane, murdering frenzy.
Kilik was no exception, and he killed many temple members because of his

  At the end of the atrocity, the Dvapara-Yuga, second of the three sacred
treasures of the Ling-Sheng Su Temple, hung across the chest of Kilik. The
Dvapara-Yuga belonged to Xianglian, a woman who had been like an older sister
to Kilik.

  When Kilik awoke, he found himself in an old man's hermitage. The old man
revealed to Kilik that the root of this evil was a demonic sword called Soul
Edge. Kilik studied the secret art of the Ling-Sheng Su style rod and left on a
journey to destroy the evil blade.

  With the help of Xianghua, a woman he met during his travels, Kilik succeeded
in defeating the wielder of Soul Edge, Nightmare. Kilik returned to his master
in order to perfect the technique of neutralizing and purifying the evil
energy. But one day, he sensed a return of the malevolent aura of Soul Edge.

  Soul Edge still existed! Kilik left on another journey to destroy Soul Edge
once and for all, for he wished to atone for his sins.

Discipline: Shissen Karihadi

Family: Parents/deceased
        His crew/Slain

  Maxi, the pirate from Ryukyu (parent-day Okinawa, Japan), led a carefree life
on the high seas. Maxi looked to the west for new lands to explore and sailed
towards Europe. While docked at a harbor in India, he encountered Kilik.

  The hidden evil resident within Kilik attracted unwanted attention from a
horde of monsters. The ensuing battle took the lives of Maxi's crew, who were
helpless against these nightmarish foes. After the massacre, Maxi swore to seek
revenge for his fallen comrades, and traveled with Kilik. Xianghua later joined
the group, and together they headed for Europe.

  Eventually, the group made their way into Nightmare's stronghold. The same
monsters that slaughtered Maxi's crew waited for them at the castle.

  Maxi forced his companions to go on while he stayed behind to confront
Astaroth. After Astaroth's defeat, the God Ares commanded the ground to swallow
up Maxi.

  When Maxi awoke, he found himself resting on a riverbank. Luckily, a person
from a nearby village rescued him. He quickly became popular among the
villagers, but Maxi's wounds were graver than he realized--his wonder lust days
were over.

  Four years passed, then a rumor reached the village. The rumor was about a
man with gigantic ax.

  Maxi had a horrible feeling that it was Astaroth. He tried to chase after the
rumored man, but his body would not cooperate. Maxi visited the village
medicine man to receive treatments for his injuries. The elder performed a
secret ritual with a rare metal fragment.

  Several days later, Maxi left the village with the promise to return one day.
Maxi did not realize that he had lost the memories of his companions in
exchange for the restoration of his body.

Weapon Name: White Storm
Discipline: Seung Style Long Sword + Natural Footwork

Family: Father/Died from illness
        Mother/Whereabouts unknown
        Master/Seung Han Myong

  Yunsung was well-known in the dojo for his swordsmanship, even by his
seniors. Hwang Sung Kyung, whom Yunsung had idolized as a child, was no longer
his hero, but a goal to surpass. Yunsung wished to challenge Hwang to a duel.

  One day, news reached the Seung Dojo that Hwang was returning from his long
journey. Yunsung saw his opportunity to force Hwang to acknowledge his fighting
skills. He may even prove to be actually stronger than Hwang!

  Hwang, however, did not take Yunsung's challenge, for he had other priorities
such as rejoining the military to help defend his country from the impending
invasion by Japan.

  Seung Mina, the master's daughter, saw the brooding young man and handed him
a single-handed sword. The weapon she handed to Yunsung was a Seung family
heirloom. According to legend, it possessed the ability to reflect the deepest
thoughts of those who held the blade.

  That night, Yunsung studied the image of himself in the sword and reflected.
He eventually understood the foolishness of challenging someone for personal
reasons when the country was in such peril. But what could Yunsung do to make
Hwang acknowledge him? He then realized that if he could obtain the Sword of
Salvation that Hwang had failed to find, Hwang would be forced to recognize
Yunsung's talents and respect him. A challenge against Hwang would have to wait.

  Once Yunsung made his decision, he could not stay put for long. He
immediately packed his belongings and left the dogo.


Name: Cassandra Alexandra

Age: 21
Birthplace: Athens, Ottoman Empire (Turkey)
Height: 5'5"

Birth Date: July 20
Blood Type: B
Weapon: Short Sword & Small Shield
Weapon Name: Omega Sword & Nemea Shield
Discipline: Athenian Style

Family: Father/Achelous
        Older Sister/Sophitia

  It was seven years earlier that Cassandra witnessed a mysterious Asian woman
bring Sophitia back and draw out shards of the evil sword out of her sister's
flesh while treating her wounds.

  Therefore, when Sophitia disappeared again a few years later, Cassandra was
certain that her sister had left to contend with Soul Edge once more.

  One day, after running errands for her family's bakery, Cassandra visited
Sophitia's home. There she saw a familiar metal shard. It was undoubtedly a
fragment of Soul Edge.

  Angered by her sister's panicked reaction to the world, Cassandra ran to the
Hephaestus Shrine.

  "Why are you doing this to my sister? How can you claim to be an almighty
God? Answer me!" Cassandra screamed.

  Her voice reverberated throughout the desolate hallowed grounds. Cassandra
collapsed on the floor, worn out from shouting. It was then that she saw the
metal fragment resonating with the holy sword blessed by Hephaestus.

  She realized then that Soul Edge was still alive. But she could not allow her
sister to carry the burden any longer.

  Around this time when light began to filter in from the eastern skies, the
holy weapon disappeared from the temple.

Weapon Name: No name
Discipline: Sword play passed down from her mother

Family: Mother/Deceased
        Father/Deceased, according to her mother

  Xianghua became a member of the royal guard with her skillful swordsmanship
nurtured since childhood. She was then assigned on a mission to find Soul Edge.
Unfortunately, the Emperor's hand-picked search party failed to produce the
"Hero's Sword."

  Truthfully, Xianghua had found the sword, but she disobeyed her orders and
destroyed the demonic weapon after learning its true nature. Falling into
disfavor with the Emperor, Xianghua was stripped of her rank and reassigned to
a menial position.

  One day, news reached Xianghua that the Emperor attacked a castle that
supposedly housed a member of the search party who had found the Hero's Sword,
but refused to hand over the weapon to the Emperor.

  Soldiers were dispatched and the castle fell, but the sword was never found.
Xianghua was summoned, for they required her knowledge and experience.

  Xianghua had destroyed the evil sword. Soul Edge did not exist in this world.
But the investigation proved otherwise. Xianghua heard rumors of Soul Edge
fragments that existed in this place.

  If this proved to be the truth, she had to find every single fragment and
crush them down until nothing remained!

  Xianghua left on a journey, words of her mother echoing in her mind!

  "Cut your path through an uncertain future..."

  There was once a ninja clan was massacred at the hands of a vengeful lord.
Yoshimitsu, the sole survivor of that clan, swore to avenge the fallen. He did
not give up even after losing his right arm during an encounter. Yoshimitsu
traveled across the sea, following a rumor about an ultimate weapon.

  When he finally reached Europe, he came upon a serious of mysterious killings
that wreaked havoc and spread terror across Europe. This reminded him of the
slaughter of his clan, and thus Yoshimitsu changed his plan.

  Yoshimitsu followed the trail of the mass murderer to Ostrheinsburg Castle,
but the castle was devoid of any signs of life. After Yoshimitsu left the
castle, he sensed the presence of a sinister energy dwelling in his katana.
Yoshimitsu left on a journey to quell the negative energy within the sword.

  But unexpectedly, someone stole the sword. Knowing that only misfortune would
result if the cursed sword fell into the wrong hands, Yoshimitsu traveled the
continent in search of his weapon.

  During his travels, he devoted himself serving the weak and underprivileged.
Four years passed, and Yoshimitsu devised a scheme to plunder treasures in
order to give money to the poor.

  The tomb Yoshimitsu infiltrated belonged to a man who was known as the
"Merchant of Death." He was able to reach the treasures without encountering
the rumored guardian of the tomb. And there he found his long-lost sword, along
side a metal fragment that emanated the same evil energy as his katana.

  He left the tomb with his sword and metal shard in hand. If there were other
things that possess the same evil energy within, it was up to him to find them
and rid them from this world. Without a doubt in his mind, Yoshimitsu left on a

Birth Date: Unknown
Blood Type: None
Weapon: Charade
Weapon Name: Charade
Discipline: Mind scan

Family: Fragments of Soul Edge scattered throughout the world

  The man's life was far from glorious. The strength that was louded within his
village was far from remarkable in the real world. But the man survived through
an age ravaged by war and finally attained the key to achieving success.

  The key was found in pieces of metal belonging to a traveling merchant. The
man spent all the money in his possession to purchase every last piece from the

  He recalled a story by a swordsman he met about Soul Edge, the ultimate
weapon surpassing all others. He believed that these fragments were pieces of
Soul Edge, and kept them safe.

  But that was a fateful mistake.

  Rumors had circulated that the man was in possession of something extremely
valuable, which caught the attention of bandits. The bandits slew him and threw
the corpse down a ravine. The hands of the dead man still clung onto the metal

Weight: Unknown (Refused to reveal)
Birth Date: March 12
Blood Type: B
Weapon: Short Sword & Small Shield
Weapon Name: Omega Sword & Elk Shield
Discipline: Athenian Style

Family: Husband/Rothion

  Sophitia was the eldest daughter of a baker. Her life was rather ordinary
until the day she received an oracle from Haphaestus, the God of fire and
forge, to destroy an evil sword called Soul Edge.

  The divine words of Haphaestus led Sophitia on two journeys. The first time,
she succeeded in destroying one half of the Soul Edge, but received grave
injuries by the flying shards of the shattered blade. The second quest took
place a few years later when she learned that the remaining Soul Edge continued
to wreak havoc.

  During the second journey, Sophitia found that someone else had destroyed the
demonic sword, and so she returned home to Rothion, her betrothed. They married
shortly thereafter and were blessed with two children. They led a happy life
until the day they encountered a particular metal fragment.

  Her children scrambled and fought violently over a metal shard that Rothion
received from a mysterious customer. The evil aura the fragment emanated caused
Sophitia's old wounds to ache.

  "Had the shards of the demonic sword infected me with their dark energy
before they were removed from my body?" Sophitia thought in horror. But that
would explain her children's frenzied reaction over that piece of metal.

  Sophitia's young sister, Cassandra, saw her bewildered reaction, and ran out
with the metal shard. A few weeks passed before Sophitia made up her mind.

  Sophitia intended to free her children from the evil sword's curse and insure
the safe return of her sister, who had left on a journey to destroy Soul Edge
on Sophitia's behalf.

  In Sophitia's hands were the new sword and shield that her beloved husband
had forged for her.


Name: Seung Mina

Age: 23
Birthplace: Chili-san, Lee Dynasty Korea
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 106 lbs.
Birth Date: November 3
Blood Type: A
Weapon: Zanbatou
Weapon Name: Scarlet Thunder
Discipline: Seung Style Longsword + Ling-Sheng Su Style Rod

Family: Father/Seung Han Myong
        Mother/Taken by sickness
        Brother/Taken by sickness

  Mina began training with the zanbatou at an early age and grew to be a
skilled warrior.

  During that time, Lee Dynasty Korea was clamoring about for Soul Edge, known
to them as the Sword of Salvation. Hwang Sung Kyung recruited from the Seung
dojo to search for the renowned weapon.

  When Mina found out about this, she disobeyed her father's orders and ran
away from home on a quest to find the sword. Unfortunately for Mina, Hwang
dragged her back home when he found her. Shortly thereafter, she was forced to
restart her arduous training.

  One day, Yunsung--who was a student of the dojo--left with one of the Seung
family's heirlooms called White Storm. Because Mina was the one that had lent
the sword to him, she felt obligated to bring Yunsung and White Storm back to
the dojo.

  Han Myong was resistant at first, but he eventually gave in, out of fear that
she would run away for a third time if he did not allow her to go.

  By the time Han Myong realized that Mina would get involved with the search
for the Sword of Salvation once again, she was already out of the country.

  Upon his death, Lieutenant Al Simmons made a pact with the devil in order to
return to the world of the living. But the resurrection of the dark lord
Malebolgia bequeathed something that was far different from anything Al Simmons
envisioned. His body, memories of the past, and even time were taken from him.
His fate was to exist as a Hellspawn.

  He was then sent to the 16th Century on a mission to bring back Soul Edge.
Spawn had to obey his master, for it was his only chance of returning to his

  Once upon a time, hyrule's tranquility was shattered by the arrival of
several disasters. The calamities brought dark, Ominous clouds which shut out
the sun. Surprisingly, it came to light that a magician was to blame for the

  Just as the people were about to lose all hope, the sun miraculously
returned. Link, who was summoned by Zelda to find the cause of the disasters,
successfully defeated the magician. The people of Hyrule rejoiced in the belief
that eternal peace would rule.

  Unfortunately, this was not to be.

  It became clear that the magician responsible for the disasters was in fact
controlled by an evil sword called Soul Edge, which existed in an another world.

  Furthermore, the fragments of the Soul Edge were gathering in this other

  Knowing that the resurection of the evil blade must be prevented at all
costs, link chose to travel to the other world and destroy Soul Edge.

  Link gathered his trusted Master Sword, Hylian shield, and Orcarina, and set

Greece or Turkey?
  As we know, many people were confused why I wrote Athens is in Turkey, not
Greece (in Alexandra sisters' birthplace)... and I was really bothered a lot
that people started to send me a lot of E-Mails asking me about it! Eventhough
they know that I am writing everything word for word, they still think that I
am wrong. Well, a very kind gentleman sent me the full answer for it.

  Mr. Jason remarks;
  "Namco is right in this... sort of.  At the time period that the game takes
place in, Greece was a part of the Ottoman Empire, which fell in 1924 and
became Turkey.  Greece would gain indepence from the Ottoman Empire and be
recognized as an independent state in 1832 by the Treaty of Constantiople."

  Hope now I will not open my Mail Box and see another dozen of questions about
it. Therefore, you can contact Mr. Jason instead if you still have any doubts.
His E-Mail address is at <raven2040@nexband.com>

  Thank you very much. Now I can focus on the other F.A.Qs for Soul Calibur
that I am working on!


Last Words:
  There you have it. If anything is wrong, just send me an E-Mail. Hope there
will be some respect for the hard work.

Special Thanks:
1)To Namco
2)To Gamefaqs
3)To all my friends for the encouragement.
4)To the very kind gentleman who sent Spawn's profile. Really grateful!
5)To Joel "Xenomaniac" High for Link's profile. That was really fast!
